Explanation:

Given that

Standard hours per unit = 3.20

Number of finished units = 6,500

Standard wage rate per hour = \$19.20

Total direct labor payroll = \$359,424

Actual wage rate per hour = \$16

1. The computation of direct labor hours worked is shown below:-

Direct labor hours worked = Total labor cost : Actual wage rate

= \$359,424 : 16

= 22,464 hours

2. The computation of total standard direct labor hours is here below:-

Total standard direct labor hours = Standard hours per unit * Actual units produced

= 3.20 * 6,500

= 20,800 hours

3. The calculation of direct labor rate variance is shown below:-

Direct labor rate variance = Actual hour * (Standard rate - Actual rate)

= 22,464 * (\$19.2 - \$16)

= 22,464 * \$3.2

= \$71,884.80 Favorable

4. The calculation of direct labor efficiency variance is shown below:-

Direct labor efficiency variance = Standard Rate * (Standard hour - Actual hours)

= \$19.20 * (20,800 - 22,464)

= \$19.20 * - \$1,664

= \$31,948.80 Unfavorable
